“As a sports dietitian nutritionist who has long benefited from Dana White's culinary expertise, I am thrilled that she has collated her recipes into an easy-to-use ebook. Dana provides recipes which will appeal to the taste buds of all, while providing athletes with meals designed to help athletes achieve their performance goals. Following science-based guidelines in sports nutrition, this book should be a part of every athlete's library.”

“Dana always seems to put a smile on your belly but in a healthy way. She always finds a healthy yet tasty alternative. I have shared many of her recipes with my athletes and always ask her for suggestions with particular "picky" athletes. Her recipes are great for athletes or for anyone. They're simple, quick, healthy, and delicious! Guaranteed she will not disappoint your tastebuds!!! ”
